Yea!!!!
I Picked up my 23ikss this morning and to my surprise it is a 2014 and the changes that go with it! They moved the battery cut off, Moved the co2 censer, Added a strip LED's under the awning, An awning for the table and couch slide gave me a great discount on a 20x7ft mat $75..serge protector $80, x chocks $65 for 2, replaced my 2 in ball for the right size. What a wonderful day! It towed great with the Avalanche and My son and his freinds are sleeping in it tonight! Camping next week-nd t=with the Family. Life is good!

Totally envious! What are the engine, tranny and rear end particulars of your 2006 Avalanche.

Love the way it towed I have the factory tow package and a 4.10 rear end with a 5.3 V-8 Could not be happier. I just picked the Avalanche up 2 weeks ago. Had a dodge Dakota before that but the Dakota would have been at the limits when towing ,got a great deal on the truck

Wow, sounds awesome DH and I have been looking at the different floorplans and wish this model had been available (used and as nice as ours) when we bought. I guess we really didn't do enough research. If I were buying new, I'd def consider this fp.

LOL, there's always things I'd change. Maybe in a few years when we're ready they'll have a similar fp but with the outdoor kitchen. I love that idea!!!! Although I told DH the interior kitchen is so nice I'd be ok without the OD one.

Anyways, have fun

I looked at the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013 Trailer Life Towing Guides and did not see any Avalanche listed with a 4.10 rear end, only 3.42 and 3.08. Are you SURE you have a 4.10??
